Vinyl Sliding Basement Window Sash

Exterior view of multiple basement windows.The vinyl basement window sliding sash is constructed of rigid PVC hollow extrusion with a wall thickness ranging from .075” on the pull handle to .050” on the interior walls. The vinyl basement window sash is welded on all four corners to insure a rigid and accurate sash that matches perfectly with the frame construction. Anti-corrosive, dual brass roller assemblies allow finger tip control for opening and closing the sash and provides years of trouble free performance. Integral interlocking webbing on the vinyl basement window sash and meeting rail insure a positive interlock in the center of the window further enhancing security and thermal performance.

Vinyl Sliding Basement Window Main Frame

Precise Cavity Single Glazed Slider corner.The vinyl sliding basement main frame is constructed of rigid PVC hollow extrusion with a wall thickness ranging from .060” on the exterior walls to .045” on the interior walls. It provides an excellent thermal barrier against all types of climate conditions. Our high tech, four head welding line provides an all welded construction. This allows accurate product sizing, quality, and it guarantees a leak proof corner. Our unique heavy-duty dual wall exterior flange provides an aesthetically appealing exterior installed appearance.

Vinyl Sliding Basement Window Sill Riser

The design utilizes a solid, snap fit leg construction to avoid shipping damage or loss. This design also allows for unobstructed drainage clearance under the sash panel.

Vinyl Sliding Basement Window Fixed Meeting Rail

Interior view of vinyl basement window with finished wood trim.The vinyl basement window fixed meeting rail is constructed of rigid PVC hollow extrusion with a wall thickness ranging from .060” on the exterior walls and .050” on the interior walls. It is then reinforced with a mullion stiffener which provides a very rigid center post that does not twist or deflect with larger size window openings. The vinyl basement window rail is attached to the main frame with four 2-1/2” long anticorrosive stainless steel screws. It also contains an integral channel with a built in catch slot which receives the lock sweep mechanism enhancing security and thermal protection.

Vinyl Sliding Basement Window Glazing

An insulated glass package designed with a 3/4” overall thickness, utilizing the INTERCEPT spacer system, provides the ultimate in “Warm Edge” spacer technology. The glass assembly is built in our own high-tech window manufacturing facility on the INTERCEPT Roll Forming System from GED. We are pleased to provide our customers with the highest quality glazing on the market today. The main frame and sliding sash are glazed with a continuous bead of high quality silicone adhesive, which is applied by robots for accuracy and consistency.

Optional Grid System (Muntin)

Double Glazed Slider with optional grid system.Precise Forms uses the INTERCEPT spacer system on all of its insulating glass units. This allows an optional grid system that prevents grid shifting or grids that don’t match up from one window to the next. As part of Intercept’s exclusive manufacturing process, grids are made consistently to match precisely, and they’re uniquely locked in place. Plus, Intercept spacers are specially recessed below the sight line. All you’ll ever see are beautiful windows, for years and years.

Weather Stripping

To provide a thermal barrier against all climate conditions, the movable sash and the meeting rail are equipped with strips of fin seal weather stripping. The top and bottom sash rails and the interlocking edge of the meeting rail utilize a .200” high pile inserted on each style member. Virtually all potential draft points have been eliminated.
